Great spot in the city centre. Room, showers and toilets are clean. Kitchen was fine (a bit small but it was ok). Welcoming staff. I was there around New Years Eve and i thought it might be too loud during the night but it wasn't at all.

The reception is cool with free wifi and laundry, a tv and bar and pool tables.. the place is...

We stayed in there for a Christmas night in a double room. Was not bad, clean and the room had a window with fresh air, a sink, and a closet. The bathrooms were average clean, but the kitchen was tidy. The only drawback is that the backpackers does not have a parking, so it took us a while to find...

My husband and I had a "double" room. full size bed, closet, sink, toilet down the hall. Bring linen/blankets off bed when checking out. We were able to leave luggage in their storage during the day and night. Still needed to lug luggage up several stairs to enter Hostel. Nice people. Right downtown, near wharf etc. The biggest problem was...

This place is located at a great place, in the central Auckland and close to most attractions. However I wouldn't recommend someone to stay here if there are other options as this place becomes really noisy at night, with loud music playing all night. Not much is expected from a backpacker but there is much better options available in Auckland...

I don't have great expectations while staying at a backpacker but this one certainly is disorganised, messy and worse than most backpackers in the city. I would certainly prefer staying at other backpackers in the city in the same area which has the same rates, but provides better facilities and service. Plus the bar below makes it impossible to sleep.

full of younger backapckers, i did not sleep well and left after one night as i like a bit of peace and quiet. but if you want a party hostel, or somewhere cheap to look for work, its probably a good bet.

Uncomfortable bed, dirty room . They tolerate alcoholic but not smokers. You pay for the emplacement . Receptionist are not all friendly Bar inside the hostel but you can't bring your own booze . so everybody buy at the liquor shop the same brand as them abs it's good.

Pros: the location is fantastic, right in the middle of everything, close to shops, cafes, bars, shops, you name it. The room size was really good and spacious. The communal toilets kept clean through the night. I didn't use the kitchen, but for what I saw it was ok. The towel rental was great, as is only a $20 deposit...

Top Bantz with the lads. Sexy staff, especially that English guy who does the vacuuming. 10/10. If you wanna Dab, QSB is the place to do it in Auckland. With free Wifi, it's the home away from home :)
